Buster Keaton is also famous as a physical comedian. Chaplin and Keaton were geniuses that could be comical characters without using words. Physical comedies not only do fun things using the body but also it is necessary to clearly show the behavior of the character in front of the camera.
Atkinson says, "I place more emphasis on acting and behavior than the joke itself, and it makes me laugh, like a character that shows a certain kind of truth, even if the character is strange or humorous, Even if it is done, rude, ridiculous, there is a kind of truth behind it, "he says in an interview.
Speaking of Atkinson's hit role is "Mr. Bean".
Mr. Bean, like Chaplin who was active as a comic King during the silent movie era, is a clown who speaks little words.

The following sketch is a joke where a teacher reads out the name of a student full of underneath. Since the teacher is simply calling the name of the student, it is seriously serious and there is no appearance to move.
Of course, the joke that Atkinson speaks is also interesting, but it can be enjoyed sketching only when there is a character "strict teacher" that he plays.
A pastor who talks about how to proceed with a wedding in the church quite often.
In the middle of the story, the audience seemed to eat lavishly by soaking the sacred bread used in the ritual of the church violently in the holy wine, the audience laughs. This sketch is also established because Atkinson plays perfectly "a kind pastor".
In the case of Atkinson, it can be said that the character itself is established as a joke.
The comedy that Atkinson shows is rather "comedy of character" rather than a comedy of gag. Atkinson is not just doing interesting things, but letting ordinary things go wrong.
For example, the sketch below is "Continue to act as instructed". The first one is "a message that has brought good news under the king".
The second is acting of "a message that has bad news".
The third one is the performance of "a message that actually brought bad news when I thought it was good news."

Finally, Atkinson plays until "actor who puts too much heat into acting and hurts foot when knees are attached to the ground". Five actions have been shown at the show so far, but we are not talking about jokes, but laughter is born with the character "an actor who receives serious audition".
In order to express such comedy as to grasp the audience's heart like this, a tremendous accuracy of performance is required. The style of Atkinson's laughter can not be imitated by anyone and can be said to be completely unique to Atkinson.
Physical comedians can express a certain kind of sarcasm by observing the behavior of human beings quite a bit and by imitating perfection from small movements to pronunciation of words.
"I assume that I encountered a situation or a person in the train, I will keep observing that person secretly, then finish it to the sketch character carefully and show myself to that character," Atkinson said in an interview.
